Webinar Recording: ClearOne Talks Pro AV Collaboration in the Enterprise

For people to engage in workplace collaboration, the technology in meeting spaces has to feel natural and easy to use. The goal for companies is to provide that ease of use as they invest in solutions that provide long-term value.

During the AVI-SPL webinar “Meeting the Needs of Diverse Applications From Board Rooms to Huddle Rooms,” Ron Lynch of ClearOne discussed an essential aspect of this experience: solutions that address audio conferencing for large conference rooms in the workplace. In those spaces, attendees have to be able to move around in room and still be clearly heard through the room’s microphones.

Ron explained the benefits of the second generation of ClearOne’s Beamforming Mic Array and how it accommodates this freedom of movement throughout a room. The ClearOne BMA CT is the beamforming mic array that’s been designed for drop ceilings. It can be daisy chained via P-Link connections for large conference rooms and will maintain high-quality coverage as people move around the room.

It’s one integral piece to a collaboration room that includes…

For smaller areas like huddle spaces, ClearOne’s Versa Pro line empowers BYOD conferencing with professional-quality audio and video. The Versa Pro 50 includes the CONVERGE Huddle DSP Mixer, a ceiling mic array with 360-degree coverage, and the UNITE 50 camera ultra-wide camera. The Versa Pro 150 adds more visual power in the form of its UNITE 150 camera.

For both of these solutions, attendees bring their personal device into the huddle room and collaborate using their cloud application of choice.
